>>D.C. public schools have a 56 percent graduation rate for students in general and 41 percent for black males. This is what the city that runs the country that runs the world looks like. This is where the great planners make their plans while just out of sight lies another great urban failure where plans go to die.

Pournelle has been saying for years that the DoEd should be scaled back to just run the DC schools, which would arguably be within the true charter of the Constitution. If they were any good at it, they would serve as a model that state and local school systems could emulate. If they weren’t, well at least we’d be many $millions ahead of the game. And a whole pile of DC educrats would have to go find honest work.

Yet, 7 of the top 10 counties surrounding DC are among the richest in the country. The largest Maserati dealership is in DC...not the most profitable, because they don't do as much financing as the most profitable dealership. Most everyone pays cash. (i.e. our tax $$)

(Heard this on David Webb's show the other night.)
